Transparent, Hydrophobic Composite Aerogels with High Mechanical Strength and Low High-Temperature Thermal Conductivities

Author(s): , ,

A one step polymer-incorporation sol-gel process coupled with a surface modification and ambient pressure drying process was developed to synthesize silica-poly(vinylpyrrolidone) composites aerogels. The properties that were investigated were: ...

Preparation of Monolithic Silica Aerogel of Low Thermal Conductivity by Ambient Pressure Drying

Author(s): , , ,

Monolithic silica aerogels were synthesized with very low thermal conductivity (0.036 W/mK) and high porosity (97%) via ambient pressure drying. This method of drying replaces supercritical drying which is more costly ...
